The challenge this week at Less is More is to create a one layer card with a theme of the "sea". I must say I am absolutely tickled pink with my card! It turned out just perfect for me. I actually made two cards, but I wasn't so thrilled with the water color card. For the life of me, I just struggle with water coloring!
This first photo is with the card closed...
This photo is with the card open. Here's how I did it...I printed the digi image on white card stock. The digital image had a black box around the image, so I erased it in my Silhouette program and stretched the image out so that it would print all the way across the front of the card. Then I trimmed the right hand edge so that the edge of the umbrella hung off the edge. To finish it off, I drew three black lines on the inside of the card and then finished the edge of the inside to match the surf, sand, and sky on the front of the card. Make sense? The first photo is with the card closed so you can see how well it flows. The image was colored with Copic markers and a little clear wink of Stella was added to the water although it doesn't really show up on the photo. The sentiment is a quote I found on the internet (unknown author) and I printed it on the computer at the same time I printed the digi image. LOVE how this card turned out!
Thanks so very much for taking the time to stop by! I love it when you leave me a comment!
